Language Access Advisory Committee

In the 2015 Operational Budget, OSPI was directed to convene an advisory committee to develop sample materials for school districts to disseminate to school employees and parents regarding parents' rights to language access services for limited-English proficient parents, as well as the resources available to assist parents and guardians in accessing language access services.

The Committee must complete its work by July 1, 2016.
